seeking grants, fundable projects
I'm been trying to keep aware of PyPA-related tasks we could fund, and of funding sources. I'm trying to list things at
but would like suggestions of additional projects. I'd also like to know about companies that have mentioned that they'd like to fund packaging work.
Current status: Packaging WG got and is administering a grant from the Open Tech Fund to work on PyPI, and got money from Facebook that it is going to use later this year to improve PyPI security. A few days ago Ernest and I submitted a grant proposal to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative https://chanzuckerberg.com/rfa/essential-open-source-software-for-science/ for development and UX work on pip. We could apply for Mozilla MOSS money again; Comcast is interested in funding Python security work; Foursquare and Anaconda have expressed interest in funding wheel-building and similar infrastructure work, and we are following up.
Dustin and I have now moved this to GitHub:
to make it easier for you to make suggestions. Reminder that the Comcast Innovation Fund is accepting proposals for projects of up to USD$150,000.
